From a creative era that even Bob Dylan himself has suggested was fraught with self-doubt and a sense that all mastery of his craft was lost, we receive this remarkable treasure trove that demonstrates how hungry and impassioned he really was. It's a journey that begins with lovely, fun covers via studio band warm-ups, and reimagined versions of his own songs, perhaps just to draw heat from the incandescent spark of his past, followed by side-trips that yielded some of the greatest songs he ever wrote, some of which never even made it on to the most uneven albums of his career. Mixed-up confusion, for sure.
